Rhone Capital, L.L.C. Key Developments

TWE In Final Talks With Kohlberg And Rhone

Treasury Wine Estates Limited (ASX:TWE) was last night believed to have been holding final talks with two private equity groups over plans to submit separate $3 billion-plus bids to acquire the business. Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co. L.P. (NYSE:KKR) and Rhone Capital, L.L.C. tabled an informal offer for TWE in May 2014. Due diligence typically takes about eight weeks to complete, but TWE had pushed the bidders to complete their scrutiny within six weeks, potentially paving the way for a deal to be agreed by the end of this month.

Treasury Wine Estates May Open Its Books To KKR

Treasury Wine Estates Limited (ASX:TWE) is opening its books to Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co. L.P (KKR) after it hiked its takeover offer to $3.15 billion, raising the prospect of a bidding war. Treasury, which rejected a $2.9 billion unsolicited bid from KKR in April 2014, said the 10.6% rise in the offer price meant it was now "in the interests of shareholders to engage further." Bright Food (Group) Co., Ltd., Pernod-Ricard SA (ENXTPA:RI) and Constellation Brands Inc. (NYSE:STZ) have all been mooted as potential buyers of Treasury. Treasury stressed it was providing KKR and Rhone with "non-exclusive" access to its books for due diligence and that there was no certainty any offer would be forthcoming.

Rhone Capital Reportedly In Talks To Acquire ASK Chemicals

Rhone Capital, L.L.C. is in advanced talks to acquire ASK Chemicals GmbH from Ashland Inc. (NYSE:ASH) and Clariant AG (SWX:CLN) valued at about €250 million ($344 million), reported Bloomberg citing people with knowledge of the situation. Rhone is the frontrunner in a sale process for ASK Chemicals that began in 2013, said the people, who asked not to be identified because details of the auction are private. The people added that other suitors have expressed an interest in the asset, which makes foundry chemicals, and a decision is expected within days. According to two of the people, Rhone has lined up loans to back the purchase from a group of lenders. The people said that the facility will comprise two term loans, a capital expenditure portion and a credit line. Spokespeople for Rhone, Clariant and Ashland declined to comment on the deal to Bloomberg. ASK didn’t immediately respond to telephone and email requests seeking comment on the purchase by Bloomberg.
